When you see a neighborhood for the first time, the most important thing
is often the way it looks, like its homes and its setting. Some places look
the same, but they only reveal their true character after living in them for
a while because they contain a unique mix of occupational or cultural groups.
This neighborhood is very unique in some important ways, according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive exploration and analysis.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
Our research shows that more people carpool to work here in the
Park Blvd / Presidents Way (39.7%) than in 99.9% of the
neighborhoods in America.
Also, in the Park Blvd / Presidents Way neighborhood, many people's commute means
walking from the bedroom to the home office. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
found that 31.5% of residents worked from home. This may not
seem like a large number, but Scout's research shows that this is a higher
percentage of people working from home than 99.9% of the
neighborhoods in America. Often people who work from home are engaged in
the creative or technological economy, such as is found in areas around Boston,
and in Silicon Valley. Other times, people may be engaged in other businesses
like trading stocks from home, or running a small beauty salon.
Finally, would you like to be able to ride your bike to work? If you are attracted
to the idea of getting a little exercise of the two-wheeled type while
reducing your carbon footprint, bicycling to work might be the answer.
But which neighborhood you live in can make this either impossible, or
alternatively, a great and realistic option. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
revealed that the Park Blvd / Presidents Way neighborhood is a fantastic
option for bicycle commuters, as 12.7% of commuters here do ride
their bikes to and from work on a daily basis. This is a higher amount
than we found in 99.6% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
Of note is NeighborhoodScout's research finding that the
Park Blvd / Presidents Way neighborhood has some of the lowest rates of children
living in poverty of any neighborhood in the United States. In a nation
where approximately 1 in 4 children are living in poverty, the
Park Blvd / Presidents Way community truly stands out from the rest in this regard.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
The Park Blvd / Presidents Way neighborhood stands out nationally for having
a greater proportion of its residents active in the military than
99.9% of other U.S. neighborhoods. If you come here, you
will notice military people active in their jobs, going to and from work,
and in plain clothes out and about the neighborhood.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
Do you like to be surrounded by people from all over the country or world,
with different perspectives and life experiences? Or do you instead prefer
to be in a neighborhood where most residents have lived there for a long
time, creating a sense of cohesiveness? NeighborhoodScout's analysis
reveals that this neighborhood stands out among American neighborhoods
for the uniqueness of the mobility of its residents.
In the Park Blvd / Presidents Way neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 99.7% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: Length of Commute
Whether walking, biking, riding, or driving, the length of one's commute
is an important factor for one's quality of life. The Park Blvd / Presidents Way
neighborhood stands out for its commute length, according to NeighborhoodScout's
Residents of the Park Blvd / Presidents Way neighborhood have the pleasure
of having one of the shortest commutes to work of any neighborhood in
America. 73.0% of the residents have a commute time from
home to work (one way) of less than fifteen minutes. This is a higher
proportion of residents enjoying a short trip to work than NeighborhoodScout
found in 98.8% of U.S. neighborhoods. Less time commuting
means more time for other things in life.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Park Blvd / Presidents Way neighborhood has more
Scots-Irish and South American ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 5.3% of
this neighborhood's residents have Scots-Irish ancestry and 7.3% have South American ancestry.
Park Blvd / Presidents Way is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 3.3% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Hindi, which is the official language of India at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, with a real estate vacancy rate of only 0.0%, the Park Blvd / Presidents Way neighborhood has a lower vacancy rate than 100.0% of U.S. neighborhoods, a very elite group. Such a low vacancy rate may indicate very strong real estate demand in the neighborhood combined with some impediments to increasing supply, such as zoning or existing density of development, among other potential reasons.
